We’re back with an update from Vegas! Yesterday we walked and walked and covered more ground at the Expo but still have so many more vendors to see today. It’s super-fun to meet so many new people from around the world and see such great inventions. Then again there are some funny inventions, too (some are shocking, really).
What’s new that you’ll see in store soon? The G diaper, new prints from bumGenius, Eco-dough (like playdough but way better and good for your child and you), some new brands of bum balms and lotions and cleansers for mom and baby, cloth sandwich and snack bags, new diapers from Rumparoos, a comfy hip carrier from Scootababy…the list goes on. We’re very excited and hope you are too! Be sure to come into the shop a few times over the next month to check it all out and remember what a great place MoCo is to shop for the holidays (and moms, you might actually want to do a wish list with us for your holiday or birthday gifts…we can do that for you or your baby, just ask. Okay, it’s a bright morning here, and we’re ready for another exciting day of discovery! Here are some pictures to help you get excited, as well as a photo of part of the Venetian Hotel, a breathtakingly beautiful place to visit!

This is an amazingly informative presentation from the Seventh Generation Blog, called 7Gen Blog (but the presenter makes you laugh many times…I promise, it’s not boring, it’s not political, it’s just facts).  I was emailed this by a friend, and while I’ve been learning about how many toxins are in our bodies and all around us for years, this is such an important 22 minutes of film that every person should watch–it can change your life for the better.  Pass it on.

“We all know pollution and toxins are bad for you. But the Environmental Working Group has conducted perhaps the deepest analysis of this issue on the most vulnerable demographic on the planet.

Watch the first 5 minutes of Ken Cook’s presentation and see if you aren’t as surprised as I was. If you are, take action, and please send this video to a friend.”
